Today and Friday will continue to be dry and hot under stable
conditions. A few fair weather clouds may pop up over the high

A fire weather watch has been issued for Saturday to account for a
frontal passage that will cause gusty winds and low RHs. Most of

Spot Forecast for Glacier Rim
National Weather Service Missoula MT
711 PM MDT WED JUL 1 2015

Forecast is based on request time of 1809 MDT on July 01.
If conditions become unrepresentative, contact the National Weather
Service.

.DISCUSSION...A brief ridge of high pressure will bring clear
skies Thursday morning and slightly warmer and drier conditions
to the burn area. By late in the afternoon and evening, however,
another weak weather disturbance will brush the area to the north
and east. At this time, we are not expecting showers or
thunderstorms to reach the burn site, though a few may be visible
to the north and east. Winds should be a bit different than
recent days with more of an easterly direction, although local
terrain will continue to have a strong influence on wind
directions.

.Thursday...

* Sky/Weather.........Sunny early in the day, then a few cumulus
  clouds in the afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms are possible
  further north and east, but are not expected over the burn
  area.
* CWR (> 0.10 Inch)...0 percent.
* Max Temperature.....90-95.
* Min Humidity........20-25 percent.
* Wind (20 ft)........Northeast 3-6 mph in the morning, becoming
  southeast around 4-7 mph in the afternoon with occasional gusts
  around 10 mph. Brief southwest winds possible in the afternoon.
  Wind direction will be highly influenced by local terrain.
* Mixing Height.......Near the ground, then increasing to 8000 to
  9000 ft agl in the afternoon.
* Mixing Winds........East 5 mph.
* Haines Index........3 very low.

.Thursday Night...

* Sky/Weather.........A few clouds in the evening, then becoming
  clear overnight.
* CWR (> 0.10 Inch)...0 percent.
* Min Temperature.....52-57.
* Max Humidity........85-90 percent.
* Wind (20 ft)........Light and variable drainage winds.
* Mixing Height.......8000 to 9000 ft agl, then decreasing to
  near the ground after sunset.
* Mixing Winds........East 5 mph.

National Weather Service Missoula MT
549 PM MDT TUE JUN 30 2015

Forecast is based on request time of 1645 MDT on June 30.
If conditions become unrepresentative, contact the National Weather
Service.

.DISCUSSION...A weather disturbance will brush the region this
afternoon. Most of the immediate impacts will be along and east
of the Continental Divide, with the burn area only experiencing a
few clouds. Otherwise, nearly identical conditions are expected
relative to Tuesday in the afternoon. Winds this afternoon will
be typical daily breezes similar to Tuesday with high variability
around terrain. One thing the disturbance may do is push a weak
backdoor cool front through the area this evening, which means a
shift to relatively light northeast winds overnight. Thus, winds
may not become completely calm overnight as was experienced in
recent nights.

.Today (Wednesday)...

* Sky/Weather.........Clear in the morning, then partly cloudy in
  the afternoon.
* CWR (> 0.10 Inch)...0 percent.
* Max Temperature.....87-91.
* Min Humidity........21-26 percent.
* Wind (20 ft)........Variable 2-4 mph in the early morning, becoming
  generally west 6 to 12 with gusts up to 15 in the afternoon.
* Mixing Height.......Near the ground, increasing to 8000 to 9000 ft
  agl in the afternoon.
* Mixing Winds........Southwest 5 mph.
* Haines Index........2 very low.
* LAL.................1

.Tonight (Wed Night)...

* Sky/Weather.........Partly cloudy in the evening, then clearing
  overnight.
* CWR (> 0.10 Inch)...0 percent.
* Min Temperature.....53-58.
* Max Humidity........85-90 percent, possibly higher near sunrise
  depending on whether winds can become calm at that time.
* Wind (20 ft)........West 6 to 12 mph in the early evening,
  shifting to northeast 5 to 10 mph after 9 pm. Winds may relax by
  sunrise.
* Mixing Height.......8000-9000 ft agl decreasing to near the
  ground after sunset.
